Medford man wanted after argument led to gunfire
A Medford man is wanted by police for an act of gun violence and he's still on the run.
Known as Novac or Felix, Mykalisteyr Greene is wanted by the Medford Police for a March 14th shooting that injured another man.
"This is a suspect who actually shot another individual over a relatively minor dispute and he's still out there. We believe he's still armed and he needs to be held accountable," Lt. Mike Budreau said.
The investigation reveals the two ran into each other on the corner of Benson and Prune Streets at about 6:30 in the morning.
"This was an early morning event even before it got daylight," Budreau said. "These individuals were out and about on foot, ran into each other and they were in a dispute over reasons.. we can't really go into.. but it resulted in a physical fight between the suspect and the victim. That's when the suspect produced the handgun and shot the victim."
The victim survived and was recently released from the hospital to recover at home.
Greene was officially indicted on the charges before a Jackson County grand jury on March 19. He still has a right to a trial.
"We believe he's still in the area," Budreau said. "The subject's drug use is a contributing factor in this crime."
A Medford man who lives near the shooting scene tells News 10 he knows Greene and said he's quote "hiding."
"We're also concerned about what he could possibly do in the future. If he did this, we're not sure what he's capable of. He needs to be brought in questioned and booked."
